Heart of Christmas Advent Devotional Day 14


NOTE: These devotional will mainly be verses and questions. My goal is to ensure that my children understand the meaning of the verse and it how it relates to the true celebration of Christmas. I will listen to their response and lead our discussion based on their thoughts, so in reality the questions may change. I will base my responses on their level of understanding of the verse we are discussing. We will then hang the ornament depicted each day on our special little tree. 

Day 14 – And the angel said . . .  

Today's Verse:

"And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, 
which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; 
You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.'"
(Luke 2:10-12, KJV)

Why do you think this news brought great joy?

Memory Verse 


(NOTE: I learned this passage in the KJV which is not the usual version I memorize in now, but it will be forever embedded in my heart in KJV. Plus, for this particular passage, KJV has such a lovely poetic flow to it, thus my children will learn it in KJV as well.)

Let's practice our verses again!

Grace – “And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host, praising God and saying "Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men.” (Luke 2:13-14)

Anthony – I have given him a print out of the whole passage and we will see how far we get. ;)

Blessings this Christmas Season,
